Overview

Indigo includes a file transfer for serial connections that can transfer the a file to or from the connected device/host.  

Please note that this is a different feature from the Transmit File Contents feature. 
The file transfer feature uses specific file transfer protocol to send or receive a complete file between the host and computer running Indigo.
The transmit file contents feature uses transmits the contents (bytes/strings) directly to the connected device/host and does not transfer a file to the remote device/host, just sends the data contents as a raw stream of data.

Indigo support the following file transfer options:
